FOR SALE:   Schwinn Bike? posted by: Shelly on 1/15/2007 at 8:39:03 PM
I think this is a Schwinn from the '40s or '50s as it was my uncle's. It was originally black paint with white striping and I had it changed to the red with white. The serial number on the bottom of the crank shaft is 172786. There is a front tire I just cropped it from this photo. Does anyone know the model, year, and selling price of this type of bike? Sorry that the photos are upside down as this has been hanging in my garage rafters for years and years.

It is a post WWII Schwinn, probably mid 1940's. It is referred to as a "straightbar", and could be any one of a number of models. Being repainted negatively affects the value, plus it does not have any of the desirable components such as a tank, carrier, springer fork, fender light, etc. I have seen similar bikes sell for anywhere from $50 to $150.
